    • Blair: Hi. Jo: Hi. Thought you were on your way to the slopes. Blair: I was. Jo: So what are you doing here? Blair: I'm here because... just no place like Peekskill at Christmas. Jo: Right, yeah, I hear Perry Como is doing his special here next year. Blair: Look Jo, I had three choices; the cocktail party circuit in Manhattan, a drunken brawl with strangers on the slopes, or being here with you guys. And I decided... I wanted to be here. Jo: Good choice.

    • (Opening a package from home) Natalie: It's gotta be a stereo. It's the right size for a stereo. It's the right shape a stereo. It is a... warm coat. I wanna die, somebody smother me with this.

    • Mr. Lazzeroni: They've got the spirit that makes America great. Just a bunch of small shops banding together to beat the daylights out of K-Mart.

    • Natalie: Gee, Mrs. Garrett, I feel kinda of guilty, all of us deserting you over the holidays. Not guilty enough to stay, but guilty.

    • Jo: I got my mom her first silk blouse. It was on sale for $39.95, only they didn't have it in her size, so they took the one off the mannequin and knocked off five bucks.
